Let the music play!

My Mom keeps on challenging me placing orders that I have to think about hard LOL She works in a community health center in her town as an administrator (she's a nurse, but now she's working in an office). Her boss, the owner of the health center, was 50 lately. So my Mom ordered a card... yeah! a card! She only said that her boss loves vinyl records and the card will be signed by 80 people working at the center. YES. EIGHTY PEOPLE.
I was thinking so hard, that finally I said like Scarlett O'Hara: 'I'll think about that tomorrow'.
And here's what came into my mind in the morning:
I made this record player in the front. And then
I made the inside like the multiple CD set. My Big Shot machine was very useful here, thank you, my friend! So, there are 8 inserts here, so the 80 people could sign comfortably. It looks like a 'Record # 1' or #2 or #3 and a track list then. Here are all the pages:
The stamp is a sentiment: 'For you B'day - this is your day'.
The 'title' of the record is '50th Anniversary Edition', as the boss is 50.
I've spent the whole last Sunday to make it, but it was worth it: people were delighted, an the boss was happy, too.

The limited edition of this record is available here:

Amazing! One of my designers was so impressed with your "record set" that she sent all of us to see!

It is very nice. You did a terrific job! It really paid off to sleep on it.
